We were there - Map

Somewhere along the Thailand border, we arrived, lived and anguished in one of those refugees camps...We existed among many thousands other Cambodian refugees, in a Vietnamese refugee camps among other huge refugee camps, like an tiny island in the vast archipelago. There we lived, prayed, and survived probably one of the harshest time in our lives.

But we were happy. Many of us got out of the refugee camps and are happy with where we are now; many of us do not; and still some of us never got out alive. They died and got buried somewhere in the dense jungle along the border, filled with mines and inhumanity. A place roamed only the wild animals, and infested with menacing men. The Khmer Rouge, the Para, the Thai special force, and the pavn (People Army of Vietnam).

Until we came.
Lived, hoped, and survived or died
